Use old newspaper for your weed blanket. It keeps out the weeds, holds in the moisture. And when covered with mulch, who will ever know the difference.
Boulders for landscaping, fountains, and borders are so heavy, they can break your back - besides the fact they are so hard to arrange so they fit just right. Take some chicken wire and form it just the way you want the boulders to look; cover this with (color added) concrete soaked burlap bags; and then add a little more concrete over that. It looks great and is a lot easier on the back. Add some moss to take away that new look.
